Celebrating the 50th anniversary of a classic, the Boyle Heights-based lending library Libros Schmibros presents a screening of the film Tiempo de Morir, adapted by Gabriel García Márquez and Carlos Fuentes from an original story by Gabriel García Márquez and directed by the great Mexican filmmaker Arturo Ripstein, in his directorial debut. Led by Libros Schmibros co-founder David Kipen, the night begins with a discussion of the film by special guests.
A lone badman returns to Michoacán after years in prison to reclaim his ranch and his woman but everybody in his village predicts he'll be dead within a day. In a scenario that anticipates García Márquez's classic novel Chronicle of a Death Foretold two decades later, Juan must decide whether it's time to get out of town or...time to die.
